On my way to somewhere else

A free verse poem

Until, one day
I never walked that way
ever again.

He came from round the corner,
out of nowhere;
sudden, frightening pain.

The bruises on my belly and
my nights got darker for a while.

Sleep blew across me;
storm clouds on a windy day.
It wouldn’t stay. I lay
awake and watched,
those hours just drift away.
